Heyy, I'm new and in need of advice. I've been on and off citalopram for a few years. Been on constantly for nearly a year this time. Does anyone have experience when it comes to pregnancy and anxiety medication? I will be TTC soon but I'm nervous about coming off Citalopram incase I become an anxious mess again. What alternatives have you tried that's safe during pregnancy? How do I ease off of what I'm taking now? Any advice or experiences you wouldn't mind sharing would be appreciated.

I also get 12 weekly B12 injections due to deficiency. Has anyone been in the same boat? Do they continue during pregnancy? Anything I should know in relation to this would be appreciated.

Sorry I know it's a lot, late night thinking haha

TIA xx

This is the contraception topic.

You might find posters with greater expertise with medications during pregnancy in the 'pregnancy' topic, or perhaps the 'mental health' one?
